In 2016, the definition of “art” is a lot more flexible than it used to be. This lack of concrete specifications has led to the rise of some seriously creepy things now being classified as a form of creative expression. A few years ago, they probably would have simply been considered evil pranks.
Take, for example, what’s happening in Denver right now…
For the last several months, The Mile-High City has been plagued by an outbreak of plastic baby faces.

The faces are plastered on curbs, medians, and buildings all over town. So far, no artist has come forward to claim credit.

When a few creepy faces appeared on his property, Joseph Ramirez, owner of Mutiny Information Cafe, told FOX31, “We thought it was cool so we left it up.”

Others have unfortunately been defamed.
A few folks also interviewed by the news station said they know the artist who’s been putting up the faces, but they refused to name names.
